Kayaking in Lund!

It was a beautiful calm evening the other night so Robbin and I rented some kayaks and headed north for an hour. Saw some sea lions, jellyfish, blue herons and some beautiful scenery. Thankfully no Killer whales! Different ball game kayaking on the ocean! Oops, thumb! Micheal Buble's place. He didn't invite us in! Harbour […]
